John Carter Brown Library - Guatemala Collection

Guatemala was the fourth city in Spanish America to obtain a press, in 1660, brought there from Mexico by Bishop Payo Enriquez de Rivera. The JCB’s collection includes a number of works found nowhere else in the world, including printer and apothecary Cristobal de Hincapié Meléndez’s Virtudes de la habilla del Darien, que llaman de Guathemala from 1739.
